    OC Bus Spottings

    6403* was laying over at Carling and Cambridge preparing to go on a 85 Bayshore trip (run no 97-33). I boarded the bus and got off at Carling/Holland at 15:13. A good change from the D60LFRs we've been getting. To my luck, I immediately saw 6402 on 85 Lees stop at Carling and Holland and was right opposite 6403 in the process. A few minutes later, 6396 pulled up and was on the same exact route as 6402 and then went down Carling. Other spottings of the day: 4490 14 Carlington Carling/Holland 15:21 4522 on 101 St-Laurent at 08:20 at Royal I suspect 85 Bayshore run 97-33 is a school trip due to the bus laying up right after students finish school. *6403 seemed to have a set of eight LED lights that were in the interior of the bus in the front, can anyone tell me the purpose of these? I've never seen them on an artic before. Any others equipped with this?

    5037 80 Barrhaven Centre 15:16 at the Royal stop. 4434 on 101 St-Laurent at 08:25 at Carling/Cambridge. From my experience, they usually use a 4440+ Invero on this specific trip but this one was a 2006.

  7. Found these photos today from user Photowalker4 on Flickr. These were apparently taken in May 1985, but it isn't possible with one of the photos being an 87xx GM Classic.

    General FML moments

    So yesterday, I got screwed over by a Halloween event organizer in my school. I had originally paid $3 for a ticket to attend the Halloween party in the gym and cafeteria. When I had paid the money to the guy selling tickets, he said something like "We don't have any physical tickets left." I had signed my name on a sheet and went on with my day. Today, I had planned on going to the party but my second period teacher required everybody to either show him a ticket or $3 as proof. Since I didn't have a ticket or $3 on me, I could not go down. I could have bought another one had I gotten $3 on me but I was not about to pay $6 for something that should have been only $3. I had thought about asking for a refund that day, but it was too late at that point. So in the end, I had paid $3 for nothing. I may as well have not went to the organizer in the first place.

    8140 on 86 Emvale travelling down Holland to the Holland/Carling stop at 15:15. 6403 on 10 Carleton at 8:20 travelling down Bronson Ave. 4366 (rebuilt unit) was on 14 Carlington coming down to Carling and Holland at 15:47. This bus was the first Invero to ever annoy me while sitting in the rear because of how loud the engine was when accelerating. 5131 on 80 Tunney's Pasture turning onto Holland Avenue at 15:13, I had previously ridden this bus earlier in the day.
